- 2015 Federal Election
Area C candidates – Jim Abram
As the representative for Electoral Area C, I have been dealing with all of the issues facing our area for many years. Many of them have been in print in this paper.
At this time we are facing demographic changes just as most of the rest of the world. We are held hostage by outrageous ferry fares and are losing young families and small businesses due to this. We are also losing our seniors due to lack of affordable housing and care facilities.
I intend to work with our young families to figure out ways to provide affordable housing and to create meaningful employment. They are, in fact, our future and must be provided for. We have many creative ways in which we will be pursuing this goal in the next few years.
I have been working and will continue to work with the Chamber of Commerce and with the Minister responsible to continue to increase our world class tourism opportunities.
Internet coverage for the entire island will help us to provide for all of the people that have decided to work from home at their businesses and to save massive amounts of travel time and carbon emissions.
I will be meeting with the Premier and the Minister regarding a complete change to our ferry structure and the reduction of fees
I will be continuing to work on a senior’s care facility and housing for all ages in a walkable, sustainable, people friendly community in Quathiaski Cove.
